Off the Painting Table – Killteam: Star Striders

Warhammer 40,000 – Rogue Traders have always been an idea that intrigued me. Essentially the Han Solo’s of 40k (of course not scoundrels..) they travel the furthest reaches looking for riches, power and glory. Although, I guess they’re really more like Columbus travel out at the behest of their ruler into the unknown looking for power, riches and glory. Fantasy Flight did an rpg system that focused on Rogue Traders and was a very enjoyable read. Playing it was another story … best saved for another time.With the Rogue Trader box set for Kill Team you get two forces that are created to fight against each other in a narrative campaign. I’m looking forward to playing it out but in the grand scheme of things I don’t see the 40k rules being very effective or even against other Kill Teams they might struggle. Regardless the models are very cool looking and hoepfully they’ll get rules in the upcoming Blackstone Fortress game.Since these guys are fighting against an “infection” I opted to go with a minty green and co

Imperium, część 128 - Prowincje. Hrabstwo Sylvanii, część 6 - Religia.

Zamieszkująca miasta Sylvanii szlachta wyznaje Sigmara, zaś żyjący we wsiach chłopi czczą Taala lub wyznają Dawną Wiarę. Wciąż jednak, wielu kultywuje liczne wierzenia i zabobony, mające swe źródła w mrocznej historii prowincji. Tuż przed zachodem słońca chłopi zamykają się w swych domach, a wieśniaczki wieszają na oknach i drzwiach wieńce grobowego korzenia i wiedźmiego ziela lub usypują kręgi z soli, które mają chronić domostwo przed atakiem żyjących w mroku istot.Wielu mieszkańców hrabstwa oddaje także cześć mrocznemu bóstwu śmierci, które przez niektórych utożsamiane jest z Nagashem, Wielkim Nekromantom czczonym przez ludzi należących do plemienia Gepid lub praktykuje wampirze kulty, czcząc nieumarłych jak bogów.O zepsuciu i degeneracji mieszkańców prowincji może świadczyć fakt, że w niektórych, położonych w pobliżu przeklętych lasów wioskach otwarcie czci się Nurgla, mrocznego Pana Zarazy.ciąg dalszy nastąpi...(a wszystkie wpisy fluffowe opublikowane dotychczas dostępne są w czytelni).Będzie mi miło

Ariete 32nd Chimera

The first piece of armour has been painted up for the Renegades and Heretics part of my force, in the form of a Chimera transport.These little tanks pack more firepower then their space marine equivalent, the venerable Rhino, and aren`t expensive at all coming in at 93 points for the basic version.While the barrel has been replaced, because, well, it was like that when I got it, it still nicely represents the multi laser cannon on the vehicle.No additional upgrades where taken for the little transport, who will serve to plug any leaks in the line with it's squad of guardsmen aboard, or as a mobile platform to go and contest objectives if the situation requires, hopefully holding out until reinforcements arrive.Now to bring in bigger guns for this part of the force...

Grav-StuG Kickstarter (January 2019)

Grav-StuG Kickstarter  I am pleased to announce the Grav-StuG will be coming to Kickstarter January 2019!More details to come.....  Dreamforge will be kickstarting several new kits in the coming year. Each new product offering will be very focused, a single product, its actual production costs and any profits expected will need to be folded into the overall funding goal. This is a strong departure from the retail model, where revenues are gained over time and the investment/debt is front loaded.  Product availability outside the initial Kickstarter. Product availability outside of Kickstarter will be limited, only 100-300 units beyond the total needed to fulfill the Kickstarter will be run for post Kickstarter inventory, some of that will be soaked up by the inevitable issues, damaged kits, mispacked or missing items from a kit and kits that never make it to the backer and were lost in transit. There may be re-runs offered on popular kits in future

Off the Painting Table - KillTeam: Gellar-Pox Infected

Warhammer 40,000 – Nurgle has never been my jam. The models are always really amazing looking but the slow-grindy playstyle and general idea of embracing decay and despair never push-ed any of my buttons. However since the boxed set and narrative campaign included both the Star-Striders and the Infected I felt like I should paint these guys up to match my other chaos forces.

Crisis 2018 - Part Two

Hoi,Yeah yeah, I know this post is way too late, but real life and stuff keeps happening to me.Anyway here we go! As Arthur and myself were staying at a hotel we were really well on time to...take our place in the cue in front of the doors. French, Dutch, Flemish, English and German was all heard in the parkinglot.After the opening of the doors, the professional  way in which the people from TSOA managed to disperse the crowd was impressive.Arthur decided we would pick up our pre-orders first, yet he got distracted by all the brilliant display tables right away. So in no particular order and without captions (sorry, I was trying to keep up with a 7 year old):As usual Arthur took most of the pictures and thus some are a little unclear.We met up with a lot of old friends, Johan, Hans and Martin, Good Ole Dave and Sir Roundwood himself. I missed out on friends like Paul and Stephan, but did meet up with new friends Sebastiaan and Karl whom I previously had only known from Facebook.Dave and me...Hans was th

Adepticon 2019! Gtg

Adepticon registration opened yesterday, and it went off without a hitch (at least for me). It helps to play a game that's both not the primary focus of a convention and also large enough to have a medium sized convention event (I say medium sized in comparison to the 40k events at Adepticon)I went ahead and signed up for the marquee Warmachine events on Thursday and Friday and assumed that I would be free on Saturday to do whatever I wanted (that's when one of the finals for Warmachine happens), so I signed up for Monsterpocalypse.I'm assuming that the rest of the weekend I'll be free. Hope to see some of you there! (All three of you who read my blog)
